Employees and Financial Burdens Four places employees turn to when they have a financial burden

bank account

friends & family

the employer

loans & credit cards

is the solution Aflac policies are supplemental and complement existing benefits Aflac is designed to pay policyholders while other major medical insurance is designed to pay doctors and hospitals

Why do employees participate? For three main reasons: 1.

To protect their income

2.

To cover their expenses

3.

Freedom of choice 9


What Makes Aflac Different? o Cash is paid directly to policyholder o Over and above other insurance o NO coordination of benefits o Policies are portable and guaranteed renewable Affordable policies ▪ Usually priced 1-2 hours a week of employee’s wage

When offered to employees there is usually a 60% - 80% participation rate In order to set up a group a minimum of three or more employees is necessary

Advantages of groups 1. Payroll deduction 2. Group savings

Devoted sales force

Aflac Japan: successful despite socialized

health care Conservative investments and high ethics

Low expense ratios and higher loss ratios

High visibility with national advertising

Position in the Marketplace •

Payroll marketing: best worksite delivery system – Everwell

Currently over 465,000 US payroll accounts 92% of all cancer insurance sales

Over 60% market share (it takes six real competitors in market who

collectively produce the same as Aflac does in a year!) Largest sales force – more than 90,000 licensed agents

Less than 8% of eligible companies in Michigan offer Aflac currently

Product Concept To provide cash directly to employees and their families to cover the extensive array of family expenses associated with serious illness or injury. Three primary areas of expenses include leftover medical bills, loss of earnings, and non-medical fixed, out-of-pocket expenses such as mortgages or rent, car

payments, utilities, food, credit cards, child care, extra household help and equipment, insurance payments, etc. Products are affordable and ideal for payroll deduction, averaging less than one hour’s wage per week – an amount the employee may not miss.

11


Product Need: What was once voluntary is now a supplemental •

People live paycheck to paycheck and often above their means.

Most people cannot afford to miss one paycheck: mortgages or rent, car payment(s), groceries, utilities, child care, etc. Bills continue whether one is able to work or needs to stay home with an ill or injured family member. In the place of employment, the sphere of influence now penetrates many other employees (potential buyers) as people within the same department, floor, shift, etc. typically talk with each other.

People have a desire to protect their family and standard of living.

People have a desire to bring order to disorder; money can solve many of the

ancillary problems at times of illness and injury. Paid leave is declining and there is no paid leave if the employee is not the one ill or injured. Spending time with family at a time of crisis is important, and having to go to work during time of crisis results in lower employee morale and productivity. Aflac gives people choices.

There are deductibles, co-payments, numerous medical costs not deemed “reasonable and customary”, out-of-network costs, and an array of out-of-pocket expenses such as travel and lodging for specialized treatment, family members; loss of income, household help, etc.

Note: Always sell based on the need for Aflac programs.

Three most important advantages of payroll marketing 1. Worksite Benefits: It doesn't get much better than being on the company premises during work hours! The owner doesn’t have to verbally communicate that he or she feels the program is of value – it is already perceived that way. 2. Ease of Payment: It is much easier to pay for something you need and want in small payments rather than in large, untimely payments such as quarterly, semiannual, or annual. In addition, since premiums rarely ever change and are often less than an hour’s wage per week, most employees forget about them altogether after two or three deductions. 3. Sphere of Influence: If you were to sell the same person individually in his or her home, the only people who are going to be influenced by the decision will be those he or she chooses to tell. “Cluster Selling” allows you to offer multiple programs to multiple people.

Qualification Gate In order to begin writing business you must prospect, prepare and plan.

Where do leads come from? •

Leads come from multiple sources such as referrals, networking and cold calling

Not all leads are good leads. Leads need to be qualified before we sell to them

Prospects have the right qualifications to be a customer, but have not purchased yet. These are real opportunities!

Once a prospect buys from Aflac they become a customer

The regional office will also provide leads from salesgenie.com

The best source of leads are people that already know you, like you and trust you

Not only are customers good for your current paycheck, they can be good sources of referrals for new leads

Establishing Good Work Habits Taking Control of your Business As you progress and your sales skills, phone skills, and the effective use of your time improve, it will take less time to accomplish your goals. Implementation of the training, selling and communication systems provided should be at the top of your agenda. These plans will require a definite, rapid system of time management. Failure to take control of your time will cause you to fail to take control of your business’ success.

LEARNING – Your prospecting, presentations and products. READING – Read success-oriented publications (books, magazines, articles) that help you gain the motivation, insight and skills needed to accomplish your goals.

These minimums must be met every day, five days a week. You must consider yourself an employee of your business – ask yourself throughout the day. “Is what I’m doing right now the most productive activity at this given moment? Would I be happy if an employee of my business were doing this on my time clock?”

The 10 Commandments of Prospecting 1.

Make an appointment with yourself

Prospecting requires discipline. It’s easy to pull it off 2.

Solution: Make an appointment with yourself to prospect for __ hours each day Make as many calls as possible Research your target audience to be sure you reach the best prospects. That way each will be a high-quality call. When you’re dealing with quality, more is always

3.

better than less Make your calls brief Your objective is to introduce your value and to get an appointment. It should only take two or three minutes to do so

4.

Be prepared with a list of names

Don’t waste your prospecting time trying to find the names you need. That might make you feel busy, but you won’t make a lot of calls. 5.

Work without interruption

Like any repetitive task, the more you prospect, the better you’ll be at it. After you get in the groove, take advantage of your momentum. You’ll find that each 6.

call will go better than the last. Call during off-peak hours Conventional wisdom says call between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m., but that doesn’t always work. solution: switch or supplement. Try calling between 8 a.m. and 9 a.m., or

7.

between 5 p.m. and 6:30 p.m. Vary your call times We’re all creatures of habit. Your prospect probably attends the same meeting every Monday morning at 10 a.m. If you can’t reach a prospect, learn from your

8.

lack of success and call him or her some other time of day. Be organized Keep a record of who you called, when you called, whom you spoke to, and what you talked about. It will help when you finally get an appointment. It’ll also help you keep track of whom you’re supposed to call back and when. *keep tracking simple

9.

See the end before you begin

Establish your goal, then develop a plan to get there. If your goal is to get an appointment, your plan (language/actions) should be designed to help you achieve that goal 10.

Don’t stop

Persistence is a skill every successful salesperson shares remember: most sales are closed after the fifth call. Most salespeople quit after the first. 18

Prospecting Scripts – Discovery Gatekeeper/Business Owner Approach “Hello

, my name is

and I am with Aflac. I am calling small business owners,

such as yourself today to offer some help to you. We are setting DISCOVERY meetings to determine if we can help you and your company during some unusual times in our industry. We then will come back for a 2nd appointment to present any POTENTIAL solutions at that time. I will be in your area during a couple other discovery meetings on Tuesday and was hoping that was a good day for you too?” Objections: “We have looked at Aflac before?”

“I know! That is why I am calling actually. But no one did a true analysis of your business during that meeting did they? With all of the changes, we are finding that business owners such as yourself are needing help truly navigating the impact of all these changes and everyone is trying to save money. I am sure you are no different, which is why Aflac is taking a proactive approach to truly being a partner with small business owners such as yourself. Again, the first meeting is really just an opportunity for me to truly understand your business and any challenges you are facing. Your only obligation is to set another time for us to present any potential solutions if there are any. Does Tuesday at 10:00 a.m. work for you?” “We aren’t interested.”

“Can I ask you a simple question to better understand how we can improve?” “The last time you met with someone from Aflac, did they really analyze your business and the challenges you might be facing and then present you with the possible solutions?” They will answer no, and you can move forward with the same response above The key to this approach is to be very clear that the meeting is obligation free. Our ONLY motivation for meeting is that we are interest in what their concerns and challenges might be in regards to the arising difficulties in the new healthcare landscape. People BUY a solution they are not SOLD a solution. If we want to be considered a consultant, which is imperative in todays market, then we have to start acting like one. 23


Follow Ups If you are looking to get a meeting with the Decision Maker: My name is ______________ and I am a benefits consultant at Aflac. I stopped by recently to introduce myself.

If you have met the Decision Maker, but have yet to schedule the appointment: I wanted to thank you for taking time out of your busy day to introduce yourself to me. As mentioned, I was hoping for 15 minutes on your calendar to learn more about your business and evaluate how Aflac can help improve your current benefits package without touching your bottom line. I am available Tuesday morning or Thursday afternoon. Please let me know when would work best for you. I look forward to hearing from you!

When you are unsure where a lead has fallen in maybe land: Send with subject line “Please Advise” or “Your guidance is needed” I wanted to touch base with you as it has been a while since we met to discuss the possibility of offering Aflac to your team and discussing the partnership with Aflac for your clients. I would like to know how you would like me to proceed. Please advise. 1.) We are interested in offering Aflac, let's schedule a time to discuss the next steps. 2.) We are interested in moving forward, but please contact me at a future date. 3.) We are not interested at this time. Please remove us from your list. 4.)

Implementation Procedures – In an effort to minimize any disruption to your business, and to maximize the positive impact for your company, we have developed a simple enrollment process. This enables your employees to make an informed decision while allowing for continued productivity with respect to their workloads. Step 1:

Contact the AAOD Department to set up the payroll account. Associate Terms and Conditions Form Number

M2178

Accounts Terms and Conditions Form Number

N140110

Account Activation on Demand

855-201-0233

SIC Request should be submitted prior to making the call with the record number in hand.

Step 2:

We survey your employees to see who is interested. We have found that the most effective way of doing that is either: Option 1:

Group Presentation(s) where we give each of your employees a packet of information with the rates included. We then explain the details of the programs, similar to what we talked about today, and let them take the information home, talk with their spouse, and decide what works best for them. The following day we will sit down with each of them individually to allow for those who are interested to enroll, and those who choose not to do so can sign their wavier form. (Similar to the way you do your major medical coverage)

Option 2: Individual meetings with each of your employees, so we don’t effect your day-to-day operations. We simply slide one person in and out at a time (whom ever is available). That way we don’t interrupt the company’s daily workflow. ** Normally, it works out better for everyone if we see your employees individually, but we want to be flexible. Would it be easier for you if we meet with your employees one-on-one, or would group meetings be more effective?

28


Step 3:

Step 4:

If there are paychecks going out before the employee meetings, we would like to include AFLAC’s Payroll Announcement on your company’s letterhead to all eligible employees, making them aware of the date and time of the meeting(s). Introduction to your payroll or benefit manager, to explain exactly what will be taking place and exactly how little he/she will have to assist in the process.

** When we are finished meeting with your employees, we will put together a spreadsheet showing employees who participated, and the amount of their deductions. So all he/she will have to do is forward that spreadsheet to your payroll department or your payroll service.

Keep this in mind Since the AFLAC programs are voluntary, they do not fall under the normal group-benefit guidelines. If an employee ever leaves your company for any reason, there are no COBRA issues. They simply take their AFLAC benefits with them, if they choose, guaranteed at the same rates. Even better, your company will never forward money for an employee.

AFLAC bills in arrears, so if an employee leaves in the middle of the month, all you do is cross their name off the statement with the date they were terminated, and we will notify them of all their options, so your staff won’t have to.

Why do we do that? AFLAC knows that if we make it easy for you, and don’t add a lot of additional work for your staff, then it makes good business sense to allow your employees the choice to protect themselves and their families, especially if they’re willing to pay for those benefits themselves.
